Biographical notes:

Norah Hamilton, artist, was born in Ft. Wayne, Ind., the sister of physician and social reformer Alice Hamilton and writer and educator Edith Hamilton. After studying at the Art Students' League in New York, she spent two years in Europe, studying with James McNeill Whistler and others. She suffered a breakdown while in her twenties and was thereafter periodically incapacitated. She continued to work as an artist, however, illustrating several of Jane Addams's books and her sister Alice's autobiography. She lived for a time at Hull House in Chicago, and pioneered in art education for underprivileged children there and in New York City.
